|Rarely can a band's demo earn serious attention, so imagine the surprise when Reeve Oliver won Best Rock Album at the 2003 San Diego Music Awards, with only releasing a 6 song EP. Since receiving the award, Reeve Oliver has rocketed beyond the So-Cal spotlight to national audiences hungry for a full-length. The wait is over.
The San Diego three-piece,fronted by songwriter Sean O'Donnell, (who also hosts the dolphin show at SEA WORLD)has proven themselves to thousands of concert-goers since 2002.They have performed on the 2003 AND 2004 Warped tour, a complete tour with YELLOWCARD, a sold-out SWITCHFOOT tour, numerous shows with THE ATARIS, THE BREEDERS, PENNYWISE, THE MUFFS and many many more. They recently found enough time to actually go into the studio and produce a re-cord THEMSELVES and had friend,MARK TROMBINO (BLINK 182, JIMMY EAT WORLD, MINERAL, ETC) mix the record. The end result? Pure pop rock genius.
Reeve's new album seamlessly fuses Foo Fighters-fullness, Weezer-esque hooks and indie pop sensibility to create an irresistible pop-rock masterpiece. With 11 new songs, Reeve Oliver's debut album is poised for world domination and unending
spins in your car stereo.
